5.0 out of 5 stars Miracles do happen -- the ghosts materialize! February 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Rewind to just over a year ago. The receiver I had owned since college had just finally crapped out (after 22 years!), and for a brief spell, the only place I could play music was on my computer. I was starting to miss playing some of my old '80s records -- like APB, the tightly wound Scottish punk/funk band who broke up in 1990, who were madly popular among the alternative/college radio crowd in the New York Tri-State area in the day. (I lived in Connecticut and was in college on Long Island when WLIR radio broke them big in '82.)

In that spirit, I came here to Amazon looking for a CD copy of "Something to Believe In," Link Records' collection of the band's early singles -- and was appalled to see that the cheapest the out-of-print disc was going for was $100, and one copy was posted for $300. In a way, though, I was happy -- it was an affirmation of just how good the band was and how their music held up. Still, I wasn't paying $100 for songs I already had on vinyl. And the one act most conspicuously absent from '80s compilation discs was still elusive to an audience who didn't know what they were missing.

So imagine my joy when the news came out in January -- miracle of miracles! -- that a New York indie label, Young American, was re-releasing "Something to Believe In" as a 2-CD set, to be followed by a John Peel sessions CD and the re-release of their only studio album, 1985's "Cure for the Blues."

If you've waited this long for the disc at a reasonable price, your patience has been rewarded.

The joys can be found in the simple reasons CDs came into existence in the first place -- to be able to enjoy music without the pops and scratches, the convenience of not having to turn over records ... and the sound quality. The sound quality!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Put Out an All Points Bulletin on this CD August 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'm still amazed by how the former radio station 92.7 FM WLIR from Long Island, NY was the life soundtrack to so many!!! It was like a rite of passage for many of us in the tri-state area. They played "new music first" and I was privy to so many groups that mainstream stations wouldn't touch. One of these bands was the Scottish funk masters APB. The summer of 1982 started my love affair with this orginal, danceable music. It was feel good-have fun-funky music.

I was feeling nostalgic last year and wanted to recapture that feeling of listening to APB's great songs, when I saw the CD was USED and expensively priced on Amazon so I started searching up APB to see what they were up to. Lo and behold, I found that it was going to be rereleased.

I love Iain Slater's haunting voice and funky bass!! I was hooked on "Shoot You Down" the first time I heard it. "Rainy Day" is an anthemic song complaining about(what else?)a rainy day that never seems to end. "One Day" and "Talk to Me" sound as good today as they did then. Actually, not a bad song on the CD!

I love the live performances. I remember the days of hanging at Malibu in Lido Beach. You need to get this CD and funk your butt off!!

For all of you who miss the late great WLIR,it is back on a different frequency of 107.1 FM on the east end of Long Island and online at [...] Every week day at 12:00pm EST is the Flashback Lunch. And yes, they do take requests and they do play APB!! I live in Florida now but still get to hear the station on the internet!

Funk get ready to roll!

One of my favorite bands out of the '80s and they can still hold their own today. Brilliant CD, equally brilliant band. You won't be disappointed. If you like funk, you'll love APB. Give em a try!
